Sleep In An Abandoned Storefront With 4-Star Hotel Amenities

Sleep In An Abandoned Storefront With 4-Star Hotel Amenities

Furnished shops now accommodates tourists and visitors to Vienna.

Yi Chen


A group of architects in Vienna, Austria, have launched the project called ‘Urbanauts’ that plans to turn abandoned stores into 4-star accommodation for tourists. These refurbished ‘hotel rooms’ aims to encourage guests to get out and explore the neighborhood. Visitors are instantly immersed in the streets by stepping out of the room.

The room includes amenities you would expect from a luxury hotel, such as TV, multimedia entertainment, Internet, minibar, safe, and bike rental. Guests can also upgrade to include vespa rental, gym package, customized jeans, and daily cleaning.

The storefront room is priced at 120€ per night. Already, this creative idea has attracted over 300 guests. Urbanauts plans to open another 10 rooms in 10 other abandoned shops later this year.
